cannot read zip

Hello all! I'm back with another problem!

I have a ZIP drive, when I attempt to mount it, it says "I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified". Is there some kind of formatting I'm supposed to do to the disk?

The ZIP drive would be my means of getting software to my linux box, at least until I can get bluetooth to work, so I can't use any non-included software.

What file system do zip disks use, FAT? Try mounting it with type vfat.

You may have to format the disk, but I don't know of a quick way to do that.

Looks like Supernu has a solution.
